A peek at the future

January 27th, 2011

Tuesday night, the President talked a great deal about the future. About what the world might look like for the next generation. For most of us, speculating about the future is just that; idle speculation based on opinion and intuition. For George Friedman, founder and CEO of Stratfor, the future is his reality. George Friedman spends his life thinking about he future. His previous book The Next 100 Years took us to a 30,000 ft. view of the coming century. Now, in The Next Decade , he comes down to earth, to look at what’s changing on the ground as he views a future within our grasp. My conversation with George Friedman.
